Matthew K. Gold, ed.
Debates in the Digital Humanities
(University of Minnesota Press, 2012)
This collection of essays brings together leading figures in the field of digital humanities to explore its theories, methods, and practices and to clarify its multiple possibilities and tensions. From defining what a digital humanist is and determining whether the field has (or needs) theoretical grounding, to discussions of coding as scholarship and trends in data-driven research, this volume delineates the current state of the digital humanities and envisions potential futures and challenges. At the same time, several essays aim pointed critiques at the field for its lack of attention to race, gender, class, and sexuality; the inadequate level of diversity among its practitioners; its absence of political commitment; and its preference for research over teaching. Matthew K. Gold (Asst. Prof., NYCCT) is a member of the GC’s Master of Arts in Liberal Studies faculty.
